    Two men charged with the attempted murder of a pair of Chicago police officers were ordered held without bond Friday.

    Antonio Jones, 20, of the 7700 block of South Hoyne Avenue, and Demario Thomas, 21, of the 200 block of East Garfield Boulevard, appeared before Cook County Circuit Court Judge James Brown.

    They were charged Thursday with three counts each of attempted first-degree murder.  The charges came one day after two police officers were shot while conducting a search warrant in the Englewood neighborhood.

    Thomas was convicted in 2008 for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and a 2006 robbery conviction. Jones has juvenile convictions for drug possession charges, the Chicago Tribune reported.

    The wounded officers, six- and seven-year veterans of the force, are expected to recover.
